Did you know? Central Bark has been nominated as the Best – for King 5 Evening Magazine’s Best of Western Washington. The category is pets / doggie daycare. If you click here, right now, you can quickly cast your vote for us. You’re allowed only one vote in each category, so we’re encouraging you to do it right now while you’re thinking about it. We’d really appreciate it!

Summer’s not over – not yet! I wanted to make sure you knew about some fun outings you and your dog can attend together.

We’re very excited that Central Bark will have a booth at the PAWSwalk this year. We’ll be at Seattle’s Magnuson Park on Saturday, September 12, 2009 getting the word out about your favorite doggie daycare and groomers. Join the 5k walk, and shop for animal-friendly products. There’s a canine agility course, a kids’ zone, and more. All proceeds benefit the animals at PAWS. Learn more at We’ll be there that Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

We’re also going to be at the very first Doggie Fest in Loyal Heights on Saturday, September 19, 2009. It runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Take part in a fun-filled dog day while you meet new dogs and walking partners. The event includes dog games, doggie treats, vendors and more.

A special note for October: If you’ve never been to Dog-O-Ween, it’s not to be missed. Held each year at Genesee off-leash dog park, many dogs and owners dress up in costumes. There are prizes and freebies, and Central Bark is hosting a booth there, too. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, October 24, 2009. We’ll keep you posted as the event draws closer.

Hope to see you at one of these events; stop by and say “hi.”

Great news! Central Bark now offers tooth-brushing for your dog. The cost is nominal – $10 – and it saves you from having to do it. Vets recommend regular tooth brushing for canines to eliminate expensive tooth cleaning under anesthesia. It’s also a great way of preventing infections that can keep your best friend down. If you’re interested, stop by the reception area and ask about having our expert groomers brush your dog’s teeth. You’ll both feel better for it.
